Watch Warranty Information & Watch Care
Congratulations on the purchase of your Body Glove timepiece! In the great tradition of Body Glove, the Body Glove watch collection was conceived for people who lead active lifestyles and enjoy water sports either as a participant or a spectator. Please read and follow the watch care instructions carefully to ensure that you are able to enjoy your Body Glove timepiece for years to come.
WATCH CARE & MAINTENANCE
- Do not expose your Body Glove watch to extreme temperature changes such as entering a sauna, Jacuzzi or hot tub. The combination of extreme heat and water may cause your watch to lose some water resistancy. During sudden temperature variations, condensation may appear underneath the crystal. This light fogging should dissipate on it’s own and will not affect the operation of the watch. If this condensation does not dissipate on its own, your watch should be evaluated and undergo pressure testing by a certified watch technician at a Body Glove authorized service center.
- Avoid severe impacts or drops onto hard surfaces. These can break the crystal and affect the water resistancy and watch performance. Cracked, chipped or loose crystals should be replaced immediately.
- Dead or low batteries left in a watch can leak and damage the watch’s movement. Be sure to replace a dead battery promptly.
- Water resistancy is attained using rubber or plastic seals (gaskets) that will deteriorate under normal conditions and reduce the water resistancy of your watch. These seals should be checked by a certified technician at least every two years to ensure the rated water resistancy. If you dive frequently, it is suggested to pressure test the watch annually.
- If your watch has a “screw-down” locking crown, be sure it is screwed in all the way and locked before entering the water. Push-in crowns should be in their original closed position (pushed in all the way) before water exposure.
- Do not pull out the crown or operate the pushers under water.
- Rinse watch with mild soap and fresh water after exposure to salt water or sand. This is especially important if your watch has a rotating bezel.
- Wipe dry with a soft cloth and store in a dry place. Do not clean with or expose your watch to strong chemicals, aerosol sprays, soaps or solvents as it may discolor, damage, dry out or deteriorate elements of the watch.
- Do not wear leather straps in the water unless the leather is treated for use in water.
